The orientation programme was spread for a complete week, which included helping the students with the bank and visa formalities, campus tours, talks with various heads of the department, introduction of the credit system and GPA system, personal briefing with the seniors and several other programmes.
Students were segregated into small groups that were headed by a senior student volunteer from the college who was given the complete responsibility of the students till the classes started. Throughout the whole orientation, the students were given an opportunity to mingle and make friends with various other senior students.
